DRIVERS in Limerick pay the third highest costs for car insurance in the country.
The figures, released by Chill Insurance, showed that, on average, Limerick drivers were paying €779 a year for their car insurance.
Longford topped the table with an average premium of €915, followed by Louth at €803.
According to Chill, car insurance premiums are higher in areas that have increased rates of crime and likelihood of the car being stolen.
Adding extra drivers to a policy, increasing voluntary excess, and shopping around are some of the ways drivers can bring insurance costs down.
